St. Ambrose University


Recommended Posts

I am definitely attending and yes I know a lot about the area. I have been to visit the school a few times and know some alumni. All of the students that I have spoken with absolutely love the program. I am from the Midwest so I think Iowa is a great state, others might not agree. It all depends on what you want. The winters are horrible but the people couldn't be nicer. I would be happy to answer any questions you have :)

I'm 80% sure I will be accepting my offer to St. Ambrose. I had to interview remotely, but I really liked the faculty I interviewed with. Their program website makes it seem like the department is supportive and invested in their students, and I got that vibe during the interview too, which is a really important quality for me when it comes to grad programs. Davenport also seems like a nice area (speaking only from looking at things online, I've never been)

 

Most of the programs I applied to are too far away to visit easily, and I'm afraid of choosing somewhere that turns out to not be a good fit. At least with St. Ambrose, I know I like some of the faculty. And the second year can be completed from almost anywhere, so if I completely hate the area, I could theoretically move somewhere else.

 

The only things holding me back from being fully committed is the cost of the program and the distance from home.

I'm in the same boat. As of right now St. Ambrose is tej only school I'm accepted to. I did a remote interview as well and loved the faculty. I liked that we could ask question for 20 minutes of it and they all seemed very friendly and involved. I will be far from home anywhere I go, as the closest state I applied to was 4 states away.

I haven't heard when the open house will be yet. The faculty (and the location since its super close to home) were the draw for me. They seem to be extremely supportive of the students and the cohort seemed very much like a family. They also have the option to take a three week class in Ecuador, which sounds like an amazing opportunity.
